I would have been a happy man watching a Beefheart/Sun Ra collaboration in 1973 DP, you lucky dog.
I had heard of Tortoise but my only listening experience came in a project they did with Beck Hansen and Thurston Moore on Beck's website,it featured them al doing covers of Yanni's music oddly enough,if you have any interest you can go to beck.com under record club,and watch /listen to the videos of said music.
Having read Greg Tates music column over many years and seeing him at countless shows I attended,when I first heard of Burnt Sugar and it's ideology it seemed to be a very appealing situation,for a variety of reasons it just never synched up for me to catch a show,then I got a bad review or two of shows from friends and sort of put them on the backburner so to say.However I still have an interest and with your recommendation I will definitely keep them in mind.Here is that bad video I saw,I'm pretty sure you will see what I was saying as far as a useless sax solo and fairly sloppy and lame backup from the ensemble.
